Milk Or Eggs

A few weeks ago I had to run out to the store to pick up some milk. My husband had to stop at a friends house to pick something up so we agreed we would stop on the way home.

Earlier that day, some of our friends asked if we could make them some banana bread...Odd question to ask someone I know, but for those of you who have not experienced my banana bread simply don't understand the heavenly goodness they want to eat.

The problem was...I didn't have any eggs...

Now, eggs are not expensive, but when you are planting a church and raising support, you sometimes have to pick and choose what you are going to buy at the store.

And because there were only $3.00 in my wallet at the time, I had to make a decision: milk, or eggs.

But while we were at that friends house, they asked again for banana bread.

I love to bake and cook. Especially for other people. It has been hard to not be able to have all the ingredients that I use to have in the house accessible to me pre-church plant.

I didn't want to tell them that I was going to the store on my way home but had to choose between milk or eggs, so I just told them I didn't have eggs.

One of them went upstairs and brought down a dozen eggs.

It is moments like that, where God uses little things to bring me peace. With not having our support raised, each month is a bit of an unknown financially. But that night, God provided 12 beautiful eggs for me to use. So when I walked into the store, I knew that I didn't have to choose, because God chose for me. It's reminders like that when I realize all I have to do is trust and have a faith that is not lukewarm; and he will provide just what I need.

Luke 12:24
"Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!"
